. >>> right now on draen mitchell reports, hagel on hold. the defense nominee can't break that republican filibuster. now he won't be confirmed medical the senate returns from a week-long recess. >> the republican minority m senate seem to think that the rule now is that you have to have 60 votes for everything. well, that's not the rule. it's just unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i'm still presiding over a war in afghanistan. >> and is john mccain now conceding this is all a grudge match? >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder sense the vietnam war, which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> the heroes of newtown. president obama pos thumously awards the medal to six people who died while rescuing the children. >> dawn hotsprung and mary serlach, vicky solo, lauren russo, rachel devino, ann marie murphy. they gave thei
. there's the group that's really essentially anti-hagel that is hoping something will happen. 1346 this is about that under current of not believing in their view that hagel is the right man for the job, but they know when they come back it is more than likely that he will get that hurdle passed and already has 57 committed yeses, more than enough to put him in the job. >> as the time continues, it's a drip, drip, drip process. they keep trying to tag him for benghazi and get that letter that they got yesterday while we were on the air from the white house lawyer on benghazi as to what the president did and what did he know, when did he know it, and did he go to bed while leon panetta was up all night? that just seems so extraneous. it's just using chuck hagel as hostage for the lerchlg because wasn't even around during benghazi. >> it certainly seems -- andrea, i guess i'm skeptical of the idea that in the week's time they really need time to review what chuck hagel has said in the past, his speeches. he know chuck hagel has said controversial things about iran and we know he has
are dying. middle east peace breaking up. that doesn't matter. the national debt. chuck hagel. that doesn't matter. there's a cruise ship outside of mobile bay. let's get a helicopter on them. >> wait a minute. wait a minute. >> that's quite a move. >> one little problem. >> what? what's that? >> the world didn't actually stop. and other things are happening. and hagel's -- >> oh, okay. >> -- vote was delayed. it will be well over another week before the senate reconsiders the nomination of chuck hagel. >> really? >> at the pentagon. >> this is the first time hearing of this. when did this happen? did they make this decision on the cruise ship? >> no. no, they didn't. it actually happened in washington. >> really? that's fascinating. >> which is its own permanent port-a-potty. >> okay. mika, for those of us that were just sitting there looking at a cruise ship for 24 hours instead of following the real news, why don't you catch us up with what actually happened yesterday in the news. >> republicans blocked a vote yesterday that would have ended the debate and allowed for a final decision
secretary chuck hagel, he does have majority support in the senate. what happened today is that a minority of that body, the republicans, decided that they were going to block him anyway. never happened before. they filibustered a cabinet nomination. in the past, over the years there have been a couple of token efforts at maybe doing this in the past that got a handful of votes. didn't actually slow down or stop anything. but the minority actually blocking the nomination, that is a whole new thing. this is a fresh hell in american politics. and that is why before today, even republican senators said it would be nuts to do this. before today these senators, these republicans for example all said yeah, listen. i might be opposed to chuck hagel for defense. i might vote no on his nomination, but i'm not going to blow up 220-something years of precedent and filibuster the guy. i'm not going to block there being a vote on him. we've never done that before. republican senators john mccain, roy blunt, roger wicker, susan collins, lisa murkowski, all of these said before today that they might vote
, we saw in the confirmation hearings with chuck hagel that cruise was by far the most prosecutorial, the most aggressive of the questioners of both of those folks, and he is someone who makes no bones about his -- both his ambition and his willingness to buck how the senate is supposed to work. we're going to hear more from him before we hear less. >> you know, the way the senate is supposed to work is that you don't ask a question about the friends of hamas until you check out whether there is even such an organization as the friends of hamas. just saying. margaret, could marco rubio and the foreign trip. he has credentials and has given foreign policy speeches. here he was with king abdullah. he was in israel and had a press conference there, met with netanyahu. he is really -- there he is with shimon peres. there is quite a lot of activity by marco rubio, even since the state of the union water episode. >> well, he has now checked his foreign policy box. you'll remember these are not always easy trips. mitt romney did not have a good trip -- when it took one during his campaign.
. at the confirmation hearing for president obama's nomination for defense secretary. farmer senator chuck hagel and got tough questions from vietnam veteran and fellow republican. john mccain asking hagel to admit he was wrong when he opposed the surge to the 30,000 troops to iraq in 2007. >> if you would like me to explain. >> i'd like an answer. yes or no. >> i'm not going to give you a question or no. it's par mu complicated than. thatly defer that judgment to history. >> history already made a judgment on the surge and you are on the wrong side of it. >> shepard: democrats defended him. >> i never had the pleasure of serving with you, which i wish i would have. we had a great conversation. you bring a fresh, breath of fresh air, truly a breath of fresh air to the process. >> if confirms senator hagel will be the first vietnam veteran and first enlisted soldier of any kind to be the defense secretary. >> he asked him to look at the entire record. mike emanuel on capitol hill tonight and some comments are getting more attention tonight. >> that is right. senator chuck hagel had a lot to defend and th
the nomination. this is almost in the nature of a stunt because these were always no votes on hagel, and obviously the white house isn't going to listen to 15 republican senators opposing chuck hagel, whom they say they're sticking with. what are the other pit falls going forward as we await action on hagel next week? >> you know, i think you've hit on it, an dre. we continue to await action on hagel next week. in theory the pit fall is something comes out in the next couple of days that in some way disqualifies him. i know not one of the 15 republican senators who signed this letter asking president obama to withdraw chuck hagel as his nominee for secretary of defense held even a 1% hope that that would happen. they do not think that hagel is the right person on the right time. i do think it's worth noting is john mccain. we've talked about john mccain and chuck hagel. once very close friends. mccain during the chuck hagel confirmation hearing was one of the most poignant, maybe ted cruise was the most poignant, but one of the most pointed critics of haling. mccain not putting his

's new concerted effort to make president obama withdraw the nomination of chuck hagel to be the next defense secretary. 15 republican senators signed a letter arguing it would be, quote, unprecedented, unprecedented for a secretary of defense to take office without a broad base of bipartisan support. let's bring in dana bash. she's working this story for us. the critics of chuck hagel, and there are many, they are not giving up? >> they are not. and that's really what this is about. this is about hagel's harshest critics to say that they are not happy. it's a big deal. they are saying, mr. president, please withdraw it. if you look at these faces, they are the most conservative members of the senate so it isn't surprising that they would be this aggressive on what has really become a partisan issue and they know what that what has happened in this recess -- the senate is in recession -- is that some of their fellow republicans have come out and said, we will allow this to go forward. so they know it's not technically going to be possible for them to stop it but the votes, they though
of the atlantic council, senator chuck hagel, our president and ceo fred kemp, it is our pleasure to welcome you this afternoon for this discussion on managing the crisis in mali. before introducing today's topic, permit me to say a word about the councils africa center for the benefit of the audience, those who are new to us were joining us for the first time via television or the internet. the africa center was established in september, 2009, with a mission to help transform u.s. and other healthy approaches to africa by emphasizing the building of strong geopolitical partnerships with african states and strengthening economic growth and prosperity on the continent. the center seeks to engage and inform with policymakers in the general public of the strategic importance of effort that. both globally and for american and european interest in particular. a subject which obviously -- a commitment you share by joining us today. of strategic importance. we do this for -- a robust media presence. we worked promote constructive us leadership and engagement in international affairs is done the central
on the nomination of defense secretary hopeful chuck hagel despite republican opposition. republicans won a delay of hagel's confirmation vote last week after demanding more information on his financial ties. republican senator lindsey graham of south carolina has vowed to block votes on both hegel and cia nominee john brennan by invoking the partisan dispute over the deadly attacks on u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. speaking to cbs news, lindsey graham said he would place a hold on the votes unless the white house provides confirmation on its response to the incident. >> i don't think we should allow britain to go forward with the cia directorship, hagel to be confirmed as secretary of defense, until the white house gives us an accounting. what did the president do? >> the pentagon has announced an expansion of benefits offered to gay and lesbian couples. members of the military in same- sex relationships will receive full access to base facilities and groups, as well as joint assignments. but a number of benefits will still be denied, including health-insurance coverage and on base housing.
disturbed by it. it came during hagel hearings and was politically calibrated to get the support of the u.s. senate. what can a president say? he is not going to denounce israel now? i am very suspicious of the motives of the attack. >> israel maintained the lorries they were attacking carried game changing weapons. does that make it all right? is anyone likely to criticize israel for taking this position? >> there is a lot of criticism from the middle east, and that can be expected. we have only israel's word to go on. i have seen no independent evidence to confirm what they claimed. i am sure from their perspective these surface air missiles they said they were interdicting might be a game changer, but they are only a game changer if israel is planning an attack on has the law or lebanon or further attacks on syria. -- on hezbollah or lebanon or further attacks on syria. >> he does not want another front, does he? >> i am not sure he has enough to strike back with. certainly under international law he would be in his legitimate rights to strike back. i do not think of is going to happen
cleared, and, secondly, what you said about the chuck hagel hearing. you see this, again, with senators that are trying -- that are retiring, that we never expected to retire, and that is the wear of the game of this town is taking its toll on the very people you want in government at a time in which we have to address the big problems that we have in this country, and you wonder if that game sort of continues, this sort of chicken and egg, chicken -- cat and mouse kind of thing. are we really going to take the best and the brightest and steer them away from, again, solving the biggest problems that we have in this country? >> let's stipulate late that on "meet the press" you were one of those, a democrat, and a former white house official who said that hagel's performance wasn't good to put it mildly, that he did not seem prepared, he did not know how to respond to john mccain and other critics. at the same time a lot of people are suggesting that ted cruise's attack on him and this continual, you know, lindsey graham now saying let's take a look at the rutgers speech and now they're d
to take down defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. >> i've covered the senate for a long time. it's unusual for a freshman to be this out spoken on a high profile issue. >> at the end of the day, i was elected to represent 26 million texans and to speak the truth. you know, i think a lot of americans are tired of politicians in washington and both parties who play games. >> the 42-year-old cuban-american, the first hispanic governor from texas memorized the constitution as a teenager, thanks to his father, a cuban refugee. cruz became solicitor general of texas, arguing for state's rights and religious freedom before the u.s. supreme court. tea party activist bucked the gop establishment to help elect cruz and now see their hard work paying off. >> he's the total package. he's brilliant. he's a great messenger for ideas and he's a guy you never have to wonder how he's going to vote. >> conservatives here in texas who fuel behind tea party senate win he's been so aggressive so fast but for some senior senators, not so much. one of the guiding principles for a freshman senator is co
president obama's time in office. >>> after a bitter political fight, chuck hagel now has enough votes to become the nation's next defense secretary. support from long-time republican senator richard shelby put hagel over the top. shelby says "he's probably as good as we're going to get." a confirmation vote is expected next week. >>> let's just say up front here that the teen involved in this next story is said to be okay after a videotaped accident from about three weeks ago. check out the teenager hanging from a ski lift in new mexico. it's believed he had thrown a snowball and slipped out of the chair. he fell, boom, right there, 45 feet. he suffered a concussion, a skull fracture and several internal injuries as well. but now we believe he's home and will be fine. don't mess around on the ski lift, folks. >> not the place to do that. >>> boeing is proposing a temporary fix today to the problematic batteries on its 787 dreamliners. those batteries are blamed for at least two incidents which the batteries either caught fire or smoldered, causing smoke on board. the 787s have been gr
hagel for secretary of defense yet, david petraeus' replacement, john brennan and secretary of state john kerry, he's still finding his way around the state department. what are they leaning to in terms of arming the sunni rebels. >> the president is still pretty much leaning totally against directly arming the rebels with u.s. military equipment. they're getting nonlethal aid, some computers, phones, humanitarian assistance, several hundred million dollars to the rebels. but as far as weapons are concerned, i think the boobama administration, the president of the united states, together with the european allies, they're reluctant to do it, afraid those weapons might get into the wrong hands. some of the rebels might be affiliated with al qaeda, for example. if you provide weapons to some of these groups they could wind up endangering potentially israeli aircraft in the vicinity. the airment in favor of it is, bashar al assad's regime has been brutal. hundreds of thousands refugees, thousands dead. more than a million misplaced. the president rejected the advice of his top national s
